GT5 Update Coming August 29th, Features & Content to Follow

August 27th, 2011 by Jordan Greer

As was suspected when Polyphony Digital announced GT5‘s online maintenance schedule earlier this week, Kazunori Yamauchi has now confirmed, via Twitter, the game’s next update should become available on August 29th/30th.

Following up with his previous remarks about v1.11, he wisely tempers expectations, reiterating the update will focus only on fixing software bugs within the game. New “features and content”, he says, will be arriving “in September and October”. That said, it is worth noting GT5‘s upcoming NASCAR Seasonal Event, featuring Jeff Gordon’s racing suit and helmet, is still scheduled to go live along with v1.11.

Kazunori has also hinted that he’s considering posting tweets in English, which would certainly be very welcome move by many of his non-Japanese-speaking followers and may help reduce the chance of mis-information spreading due to bungled translations. Thanks to iWallbreaker for the tip!

    Don’t forget. Kaz did say that the times may change.

  2. Aug. 29, 2:06pm

    The ‘Pikes Peak Hillclimb’ track and much more damage please !!!
    And also the First-Gen Mazda RX7
    And the Mazda 323 (Familia) 4×4 Turbo 1985-1989

  3. Aug. 29, 1:55pm

    So it’s the 29th where’s the update? Is it available or what?

  4. Aug. 29, 1:27pm

    Hey I am American and prefer the old Dirt. Don’t go type-casting us all. Alot of us still love any form of racing. Weather it be F1 NASCAR rally or sportscar racing. No gimmicks involved.

    EA owns the rights to use Porsche cars exclusively and they will not appear in Forza 4 because EA will not allow it this time for the time being because Forza’s success is a serious threat to EA main racing franchise.

    That is how things stand now, but it the license wasn’t in possession of EA then SONY (not PD) would have their chance to attempt to acquire licenses to use Porsche vehicles in the GT games.

    So in short. It doesn’t matter if Microsoft or Sony asked Porsche to let them use their cars because that decision is up to EA.

  6. Aug. 29, 12:08pm

    Do you know what i think would be great…………..when new cars get released that PD make an effort to add them to the game in the updates.
    When the Ferrari 599 GTO was on Top Gear i wanted it in GT5. Just add a new car(real life new) or 2 every update free of charge like that 599 GTO or even the new BMW.

    But when it comes to DLC’s that we pay for i wish for older tracks from previous games & more world tracks like Spa, Doninghton etc
    Cars aswell, old cars such as Ford RS2000, Ford MK1 Escort, Toyota Supra (premium), more premium american muscle.

  7. Aug. 29, 12:07pm

    Also, GT5 took so long because it was the ‘prequel’ to GT6, just like GT1 and GT3 were. GT5 uses practically new everything, apart from the Standards. Speaking of cars, GT2 had like 800, whereas GT3 only had 250-ish cars, and GT4 had 700 and more tracks.
    YES, tracks were dumped for GT3, just like GT5 so wait for GT6 and/or this ‘DLC’ and then make up your minds.

    • Aug. 29, 1:47pm

      THANK YOU. Great job putting things into perspective.

  8. Aug. 29, 12:05pm

    29 august 18:05 and still nothing ….?

  9. Aug. 29, 12:03pm

    Well, Kaz did say he wanted more time on this game. But no, the fans were trollin’ and whining about it being delayed and wanted it out quicker. Well fans, this is what you got. Be happy with it or move along.
    If you can’t find ways to have fun, make some friends and go play online. And learn to drive without TCS, Skid Recovery and shift your own gears.

    Guys, PD can’t just add some cars and tracks, they need permission for it and a license.
    I don’t see a update…
    It’s August 29th midday.
    On GT5 at ‘news’ it says the Gordon event comes in the morning of the 30th and there is mainetence planned for 04:00 in the morning.
    (All Amsterdam time)

    • Aug. 29, 1:46pm

      THANK YOU. Just like the cars, people don’t understand that PD needed to get the licenses for all 1,031 or so cars.

    • Aug. 29, 2:02pm

      Licenses for over 1000 cars?!?! That’s a lot of time waiting in line at the DMV.

  13. Aug. 29, 9:48am

    PD said they would fix (again) software bugs and glitches. Does that also include graphics? It’s been a real issue since it’s relase, GT5 has pixelated shadows and aliased edges when there are smoke, rain or snow effects (bugs that were not in the GT5 Prologue btw, why?). Forza 4 is about to be released and if PD doesn’t enhance GT5’s visuals, they will have something to feel ashame for. Oh, and I am not bashing like I’m an hysterical Forza fan. I’ve played all the GT available, and I hate to see graphics regression. Every new GT would surpass the previous one, but with GT5 it seems that Kaz strongly pulled the brake to that momentum. Please PD, break my jaw again with unmatchable graphics!

    • Aug. 29, 11:25am

      Good criticism, I sensed no douchebaggery from your comment. In response to the aliased edges with debris/rain/smoke, it appears that’s been given tweaks. It’s A TON better than it was at first.

  14. Aug. 29, 9:20am

    The patch isn’t out yet.

  15. Aug. 29, 6:23am

    I want penalties for crashing and cutting corners in GT (not online) playing mode!

    Error 404

    Facepalm. I give up. Srry for the double.

    • Aug. 29, 1:44pm

      hahaha I think it’s doing good now. Fixed is the term, I believe.

  17. Aug. 29, 2:46am

    When DLC? Where?…..

    WE NO WANT A CAR PORSCHE Only EA!!! just we a RUF.

  18. Aug. 29, 2:09am

    How come this patch 1.11 has generated all these wish comments. The actual article said that it will “focus only on fixing software bugs within the game.

    New “features and content”, he says, will be arriving “in September and October”.

    I would suggest don’t hold your breath or raise your expectations too high. If the goodies do come in September or October then great. In the meantime a less buggy game will be appreciated.

    • Aug. 29, 1:13pm

      Because most of these are idiots and just dont read whats coming let alone think about what their saying

    • Aug. 29, 1:44pm

      HO YEAH! hahaha

    • Aug. 29, 1:57pm

      I consider non-configurability of the G27 to be a bug.

  19. Aug. 29, 12:27am

    This guy is such an idiot and knows nothing about the GT series. First off Porsche will never be in GT5 because all of the car manufactures in GT5 did ask PD to give them money for them being included in their game. The reason that Porsche and other manufactures are in Forza because, Microsoft pays for them to be in there. As for PD they don’t they ask them to be in their game.

  20. Aug. 29, 12:13am

    They are way too many trolls in here screaming Forza 4.It’s like an arcade game compared to GT5 most of the people complaining are Forza fanboys and all the DLC is FREE.By the way can you us a G25,G27,or Thrustmaster no XBOX doesn’t support it just cheap steering wheels.

    • Aug. 29, 12:29am

      Black, I think you’re referring to the people that by the Black Ops map packs.

    • Aug. 29, 1:34am

      so you prefer people to take your money and rip you off like the people that make call of duty, ok. go ask mommy for her credit card number I’m sure she’ll give it to you

    • Aug. 29, 1:43pm

      Black, I agree.

      But actually, honestly, FM4 will be more realistic than FM3, but gameplay graphics still aren’t as realistic as people think (still cartoony) and the physics won’t be as good as GT5’s because they didn’t even strive to have a pure sim for the previous Forzas.

  21. Aug. 28, 10:25pm

    So tomorrow is the day… let’s see what PD prepared for us…

    Until they ethier remove half of the useless JAP cars or turn them premium, GT5 will stay in it’s box. Never opened since the ferrari seasonal WAY back.

  24. Aug. 28, 7:10pm

    That’s GT for you. Play Forza if you want mostly supercars/fast cars. GT is for old and young people. Slow and fast. Nobody cares that you don’t like GT’s car selection. I like it a lot, but COULD be better with more fast cars, obviously.

    (reply went to the wrong spot somehow)

  26. Aug. 28, 6:29pm

    Pd needs to do something… I got a free xbox with a computer purchase and forza3 demo had me. 5 years in the making for my dream game and after a few months of playing i get bored after 30mins of play (it feels like im always doing the same thing over and over). All that hype for nothing. I see people posting about how fun it is to play online, i dont remember ever of even thinking of a way to play with more people in order to have fun in all previous gens or online. Heck playing with subaru wagons and rally (im not a rally guy) was so crazy back then. Now it feels like after you have few bucks the game is not a challenge anymore specially when you can predict movements of the AI’s. Weather change, time change, camera movement with ps eye, give me a break. Can someone tell me what the f”!k is the point of the daihatsu midget, VW kubelwagen, VW schwimwagen. By the way the VW’s are premium cars while the bugatti veyron isnt.

    Sorry i just really had to get that out of my chest. For some reason i see PD the same way i see a crack head who is saying, “this is the last time i promise”. No matter how many updates they promise, ill believe it when im playing.

    PS: I still have my ps, ps2 with all previous GT copies… In fact he only reason i’ve always have ps is because of GT or meaby its just im growing out of it!?… :(

    • Aug. 28, 6:39pm

      To answer your question about the cars you listed in your post. The Veyron was in the PSP version of GT and was ported to GT5 so that’s why the XFR, Audi R8 LMS and the Veyron are standard. The two Volkswagens that you listed, I don’t have to tell you that go back and play GT4 you had the Mercedes Benz 1hp wagon and that other wagon by Damier. It’s just there for the “wow factor.” The reason they put the Midget in GT5 was because it was in the previous game.

  27. Aug. 28, 6:14pm

    My wish list: More tracks (preferably F1 tracks, like Spa, Brazil and all the other tracks). Get rid of the ridiculous drafting, my god it reminds me of the DRS they have in F1. The tire wear is so fake. Why do the soft compound tires wear less than the hard? Also why is the Audi R10 so bad? -10mm in the back of the car, and you can’t even adjust it. The seasonal events, lisence tests are way to easy now, it reminds me of CoD catering to the people that are just bad at this game. Get rid of the used car dealer ship. I understand it’s been in all of the GTs, but it’s not needed. Make it like GT4 where you had classics in one order and the new cars in the other order. And A-spec endurance races, make it like GT4 where I can have Bob race for me. I’m not a race car driver, I have a life, I don’t care if the people at PD wanted to be real, because it’s still a video game. Also when PD implments the in-game race saves for endurance races, make it so I can quit the game and go back to my GT life screen, don’t force me back in the race when I pop the disc in my ps3.

    • Aug. 28, 6:19pm

      One more thing I forgot to add. then 20 million cap is so dumb. Think of the person that just got this game today he wants to by all the cars over 10 million, haha good luck doing Ferrari Le Mans seasonal event in that pimped Enzo Ferrari. Lucky for me I have 100% in game status and own all the cars plus 4 F2007s and 2 F10s that was all done from sending them to my alt account and saving me millions.

  28. Aug. 28, 5:54pm

    What is with you people wanting DLC? If I recall games before PS3 never came with DLC they came out as is. I understand GT5 could have been a lot better than GT4 but if you want DLC wait for GT6. That’s the next DLC.

    • Aug. 28, 11:17pm

      GT3 and GT4 didn’t need DLC anyway: they were full games. GT5 is full with things we don’t need and missing what we really want in a racing sim.

    • Aug. 29, 9:02am

      @AnPrionsaBeag GT5 is not a Racing Sim. It’s a Driving Sim. There’s a difference. This game is about driving the cars, it’s not about winning races.

    • Aug. 29, 11:53am

      Well, it can considerably be categorized as both. But I agree, Driving Sim it should be called.

      Quite a number of standards even look better than FM3’s gameplay car models. I find it odd how people always post this photo
      to “prove” all GT5 standard car models look bad. And it’s funny how those are the same kind of people who completely prefer FM cars to GT cars. Those people try to make a valid point but don’t understand that they’re only trying to be the person who is right.

      GT5 is only missing more cars (Premiums) and more tracks (that’s what most people care to complain about). But isn’t that for every game? Every game needs more content (GT3 had so little compared to GT4; GT5 has so much more than GT3, it has more horsepower as well, I don’t see time change and meticulously replicated car models in GT3/4). Especially a game that is solely about DRIVING. +1,000 cars and people think that isn’t enough content?

      And the mega-complainers think they’re so right all the time. Nuh uh uh. You’re just completely insane!

      This reply wasn’t directed at MP4 or SpidermanGeek. AnPrionsaBeag, how does he know what we REALLY want in a racing sim? Perfect example, that comment.

    • Aug. 29, 12:48pm

      Yeah…and FIFA is not a soccer game…it’s a soccer ball game simulator.

    • Aug. 29, 1:39pm

      FIFA doesn’t let you use a soccer ball and can’t be experienced like a driving sim can with a steering wheel. You’re arrogant, by the way.

      NOTHING, NOTHING can be simulated as smoothly as a car game can be. The steering wheel is the essence of the simulation. Wii Tennis can’t be a sim like car games. Soccer most certainly can’t be either. Totally ridiculous reply, Sam. I see so many of those kinda comments and it makes me sick. Not constructive at all and you made yourself look dumb. Unless you made a soccer ball game simulator.

      haha soccer ball game simulator. You mean soccer simulator.

    • Aug. 29, 1:42pm

      Anyway: too much irony can be arrogant… Sorry for that.

    • Aug. 29, 1:55pm

      I did, but I see your point too. It’s really not a big deal but it’s just that SpidermanGeek only replied because this, “GT3 and GT4 didn’t need DLC anyway: they were full games. GT5 is full with things we don’t need and missing what we really want in a racing sim”, is completely ridiculous.

      This was posted lower down on this page.

      “Also, GT5 took so long because it was the ‘prequel’ to GT6, just like GT1 and GT3 were. GT5 uses practically new everything, apart from the Standards. Speaking of cars, GT2 had like 800, whereas GT3 only had 250-ish cars, and GT4 had 700 and more tracks.

  29. Aug. 28, 3:27pm

    I think it is safe to say just about all of us would rather have the smaller car selection from Forza 3, which is tanked full of Le Mans cars. Plus Forza 3 gave a great livery maker. Of the prototypes in GT5, only 3 premium models for us to use the in-car on, and they didn’t even do the simple thing of adding the other factory paints, like how we have the #1 Peugeot 908, but not the #2 with the red mirrors and the #3 with the yellow mirrors. So if you are using one of your few good cars you look the same as all the other ones, not much of a personal touch. Can’t beleve they did driver gear before that.

    • Aug. 28, 7:17pm

      FM4’s car selection looks to be pretty amazing. Would like to have those cars. And that’s why, MP4-25, we need DLC. Well, just one reason. More tracks and more cars, would be great for DLC. More is better usually.

    • Aug. 29, 9:16am

      No Sir,

      saying so isn’t save at all.

      For me there are more cars than I would ever be able to tune and I really like some of the oddities included (as e.g. the SambaBus). Additionally I personally don’t care about the standard/premium discussion as I’m not using cockpit-view anyway.

      If I had the choice I would opt for a larger variety of tracks, including point-to-point races, steep montain tracks etc.

      So please do not assume that everybody has the same needs as you.

    • Aug. 29, 11:32am

      Good stuff. Generalizations are mostly wrong when it comes to people arguing/talking about FM and GT. FM4’s car list looks fantastic, but I very much prefer GT’s car list because of the variety. Like you say, the SambaBus or Kubelwagen. They’re there for variety, not just,

      “I’d rather buy a game that only comes with 10 cars, (that are fast, competitive, and fun to drive) than buy a game with 0 good cars out of 1000. Nobody wants all that Nissan, Honda, and Japanese car cap. Put in some American cars, race cars, like v8 super cars, Indy cars, and grand am. Also, have a better dirt experience. The cars suck on the. When you try to swing the rear of the car, it bogs down. Gt5, this is why you are losing fans.”

      Completely simple minded.

    i dont see any problems with the game, especially online. lags happen if that person has a bad connection and that happens, pd cant fix that. why would you want the ai to be better???? you really dony want to win races???

    more tracks yes, betters cars maybe. theres already over 1000 so idk how much you guys want

    • Aug. 28, 12:37pm

      It’s not about winning with the AI, that’s why we don’t all run around on easy, it’s about having a fun compition. And yes, there are 1000 cars, but the selection is poor. Most of em’ are crappy little junkers and hardly any good race cars.

    • Aug. 29, 1:20am

      (amac500) HARDLY ANY GOOD RACE CARS?! that’s the most ridiculous thing i’ve heard ANYONE say about GT5. go buy an arcade game with arcade cars and leave us in peace!

    DLC (when it finally comes) will be the biggest disappointment GT5 has ever seen…

    There will be no NEW cars
    There will be no extra tracks

    We will see online leaderboards
    We may see more Drag racing + Drift events

  38. Aug. 28, 3:41am

    Oh please let there be the R18 and 90x with each of their 3 respected liveries and Spa with time and weather change. That would make me a happy man indeed.

    • Aug. 28, 3:45am

      Almost forgot, I hope I finally get my in race saves, that’s the third thing to make me satisfied. I’m not even saying let me change the base and secondary car colors as well as letting me change my number on those premium LMP’s. Just the R18 and 90x with each of their 3 factory liveries, Spa with time and weather change, and in-race saves.

    • Aug. 28, 3:47am

      The 90x is the new version of the Peugeot 908 that is currently in use for those of you not in the know.

    • Aug. 28, 1:29pm

      The 90x is called the 908 actually.

      Peugeot must’ve ran out of numbers I guess.

    • Aug. 28, 3:13pm

      The second generation 908 was developed under the code name of 90x. Idk why they are calling it the same thing as before with the differences but everytime I talk or see people talking about it it is referee to as 90x to avoid confusion.

  39. Aug. 28, 2:38am

    Hopefully this bug fix also introduces drivetrain as a restriction for rooms. I want more options for online not less, and the ability to have a x2 rolling start for every course except Tsukuba(it’s just too damn small unless you are racing karts) and reintroduce tire type into the PP equation as an option for rooms.

    I also think there is a bug that makes many of the standard super cars handle like they are on ice, S7, Speed 12 and the Ford GT’s handle oddly(low grip and low downforce) compared to Premium cars. For goodness sakes allow standard cars to flash lights on and off, i find it stupid as hell that i can’t do that, bad enough we don’t have high beams but we can’t flash cars to tell them we are making a move?

    I like the racing suits and helmets, one step closer to livery editor. One can only hope they have a system ready to add as we already see that the premium cars can have liveries applied to them and well the standards can most likely do it albeit a bit differently but it can be done. Let’s see what comes after this bug fix shall we? GT5 should be GT6’s practice go, keep all the premiums and bring all the standards to premium status for the next game complete with deeper visual customization, and more in depth tuning(ecu mapping and restrictor plates, etc.)

    I still play GT5 everyday to hit level 40 and get cars that I am searching for as well as the occasional online race for a few hours. Recently i have been racing on sport tires and 450PP-550PP range, good stuff as you really have to balance your car as you don’t have super poli grip race tires to save you. All I have to say is, this game is incredible, for what it’s worth.

    • Aug. 29, 5:23am
      Antony Henley

      Nope it’s a plain bug fix. ie to fix the bugs. No new additions to the game. They will be in vr1.12

  40. Aug. 27, 11:42pm

    Finally something I can hope for!!! I think that a new event that just gives u stupid racing suits is just unacceptable for a “RACING CAR” game. I think that FORZA should bring something that knocks GT5 out of the water, so that PD really starts thinking of updates that really ensure the entertainment of the loyal gamers. I really love the game GT5 but this unrelated crap like racing suits is gotta stop, I mean if one wanted a pure simulating racing game, it would be focused on the things that are really important to game as the genre suggests. But I really look forward to seeing PD reveal some good stuff in the months to come.

    • Aug. 28, 1:15am

      I don’t think Forza will knock out GT5 from the water because 1.) it’s on the Xbox, and 2.)Most GT players will stick to GT.

      As for suits and helmets, I like them, as it as a bit more personality to your driver.

      You must also understand, as far as GT is a simulator, it still must be a game to appeal to the broader audience. A true GT simulator can probably be only pulled of on the latest PC tech.

  41. Aug. 27, 11:09pm

    Bring some more tracks that have been in the games before GT5 like Seattle,New york and Città d’Aria, a drag track more tuned cars new models and concepts Make this happen

  42. Aug. 27, 9:23pm

    Gt4 tracks dlc, premium car updates, match making, online bug fixes and mabey even a spa track dlc. Its alot to ask but i think and hope this is what we’re all getting.

  44. Aug. 27, 7:55pm

    YESSS!!! There’s a reason for me to roll on the floor! Hopefully they will include the Audi RS4 if the DLC comes.

  45. Aug. 27, 7:53pm

    I would really like to view Kazunori Yamauchi’s tweets in English, however I think there’s something to be said about keeping the Japanese as well. Posting tweets in Japanese with the English translation consecutively is one possible option. Another option would be to create a “Yamauchi-san’s Translator-san” Twitter profile and provide the English translations for all the Japanese posts there? The latter option would help Yamauchi-san understand the UK / US (or English speaking) interest based on how many followers that profile would get.

    I think that with the likes of Turn 10 & Microsoft looking to appeal directly to the US + UK markets, anything Yamauchi-san can do to help bridge the language divide – when it comes to news & info – has to be worth the effort.

    I’m very much looking forward to seeing what Polyphony Digital has in store for Gran Turismo 5 over September and October.

  46. Aug. 27, 6:14pm

    Drag racing with leaderboard per car make please

  47. Aug. 27, 5:43pm

    Online leaderboards

  48. Aug. 27, 5:34pm

    Picture unrelated.

  49. Aug. 27, 4:56pm

    I hope I see the FT-86 II coming! It looks like such a great car.

    It just a minor update guys, its been said several times, so don’t hold you breath on much but a few much needed bug updates and glitch fixes. I would like to see mileage count for everything though, instead of when you finish a race.. not getting my hopes up though.

    • Aug. 28, 11:03pm

      Umm, did you not see “New features and content will arrive in september & october”??

  51. Aug. 27, 4:32pm

    I knew I was right about gt getting better in the next few months! :)

  52. Aug. 27, 3:56pm

    My whish list?

    More tracks please!

    plain simple!

    Come on PD drop some classic stuff: El Capitan, Città d’Aria, New York…

    • Aug. 27, 11:57pm

      +1 from me!

      I haven’t played GT5 for ages, having gotten bored with it. Instead I’ve been using a second-hand PS2 to play GT1, 2, 3, and now 4.

      There are so many great tracks in that lot! Apart from the one’s you’ve mentioned, the old favourites Midland and Apricot Hill, Seattle, Tahiti Road, Red Rock Speedway, Grindelvald (sp?), Amalfi, earlier configurations of Fuji etc etc.

    • Aug. 28, 2:57pm

      And if I am correct, wasn’t Road Atlanta on GT1 or one of the franchises earlier games? I strongly think we should have all ILMC tracks, except the China one nobody cares about, so I wish to cross Road Atlanta off the list.

    • Aug. 28, 6:03pm

      I like this guy.

  53. Aug. 27, 3:32pm

    I just saw a car i hope gets in to gt5, the mini rally car! it looks awsome.

  54. Aug. 27, 3:21pm

    My wish list for GT5’s 1st anniversary;

    1. A Cadillac CTS-V
    2. The new M5
    3. Better Damage
    4. PS Move Support
    5. Less Ricer Skylines and More Good Cars
    6. More Online Modes
    7. More Tracks (Monticello, Spa etc.)
    8. BMW X5M
    9. Interior Photomode
    10.If #1, 3, 2, 5, 4, and 7 happen, I will eat my own d*ck

    • Aug. 27, 3:23pm
      Steven W

      That’s true, they kinda messed the game up to begin with, like the only caddy is the cien concept, why not give us new cars like all the new mustangs, and new cars that are coming out.

    • Aug. 27, 4:49pm

      “5. Less Ricer Skylines and More Good Cars”
      Skylines arent good cars? I guess the fact that it was quite the dominating car in touring car racing back in the day doesnt count. So dominating that many of its features were subsequently banned in many professional races/series.

    • Aug. 27, 8:42pm

      Yeah, I’ve always had the idea that PD MIGHT release some content by GT5’s 1st birthday… I hope I’m correct…

    • Aug. 28, 11:49am

      Out of all your list. I think 7 and 9 would be well appreciated.

    • Aug. 28, 6:02pm

      lol at that list, better damage. sure it’s a driving simulator you’re not suppose to be crashing. 2 PS move? are you 13 years old? 3 more online modes? if i recall before ps3 people bought games for the single player not the online, the current online is fine as is, but yet again i play in private rooms with people that are actually good.

    • Aug. 29, 3:09am

      I could do without #10…..XD

  55. Aug. 27, 3:20pm
    Steven W

    Like half the cars in the game cost close to 1 mill

    • Aug. 27, 6:03pm

      You can trade all but 96 cars in this game excluding DLC cars.

    • Aug. 28, 2:07pm

      Good reply. I heard someone saying only cheap crappy cars are able to be traded somewhere. It’s annoying when people think they’re so special that a list of +900 cars hasn’t anything worth using. Also, with the standards’ engine sounds, a lot of them sound pretty good. Standards are only less detailed; physics and engine sounds are just the same for standards as it is for premiums.

    • Aug. 28, 3:10pm

      I’d rather buy a game that only comes with 10 cars, (that are fast, competitive, and fun to drive) than buy a game with 0 good cars out of 1000. Nobody wants all that Nissan, Honda, and Japanese car cap. Put in some American cars, race cars, like v8 super cars, Indy cars, and grand am. Also, have a better dirt experience. The cars suck on the. When you try to swing the rear of the car, it bogs down. Gt5, this is why you are losing fans.

    • Aug. 28, 3:20pm

      I deffienetly agree with you 100%. An with all those Japanesse crap cars they couldn’t hav done something cool like add Nissian’s LMP2 car that the winner from GT Academy even gets to drive at Le Mans!? Personally with the low quality dirt racing experience they should have just left it out and stuck to circuit racing. I mean they don’t even make the cool Le Mas ars that they have premium and there are no actually GT Le Mans cars like the 458 and Corvettes that run Le Mans. For sure a disappointment. What’s the point to hyping up all these features when they are half done?

    • Aug. 28, 7:11pm

      and again.

      Comment is for Mangusta and Amac below. You guys want everything and more. So annoying, go play in your sandboxes.

    • Aug. 28, 7:12pm

      NOW IT’S ABOVE! something’s wrong with this comment section

    • Aug. 28, 7:13pm

      That’s GT for you. Play Forza if you want mostly supercars/fast cars. GT is for old and young people. Slow and fast. Nobody cares that you don’t like GT’s car selection. I like it a lot, but COULD be better with more fast cars, obviously.

    • Aug. 28, 8:27pm
      alex l.

      race mod zr1 is as good as the lemans corvette same as the fully moded 458 if tuned properly you can get cars as good or better.

    • Aug. 28, 8:22pm
      alex l.

      may i suggest you get a corvette zr1 race mod it or a cuda,mustang boss,charger/challenger 70.there are many good american cars and if you want a rally game get dirt 3.

    • Aug. 28, 11:29pm

      “if you want a rally game get dirt 3.” Funny. I take it you never played it or even like rally. Dirt3 is a shame to the series, even more so than GT5 is to Gran Turismo.

    • Aug. 29, 3:12am

      only good/realistic rally game on ps3 has and i guess will always be the original Colin McRae DIRT. before they mainstreamed it for the americans! adding arcade physics, and all that xgames rubbish. rest in peace colin.

    • Aug. 29, 8:11am

      “when in doubt, flat out.”
      R.I.P. Colin

    • Aug. 29, 1:24pm

      im strongly agree with you.arcadish feel, xgames crap, & “totally awesome dude” x game actors. missed REAL RALLY not put bottles on the road & smash them with DC shoes pimped rallycar.

    • Aug. 29, 2:03pm

      The downfall of society is all this MTV crap with Bieber tw@t music and mainstream POP music in general. Casual 360 and kinect. It’s all about the money when it comes down to a lot of American business. Very few mainstream artists are TRUE artists and very few idolized celebrities are actually good people. Katy perry likes kissing girls and usher can’t get enough ass because he stays relevant by making music people have sex to, which in turn, pollutes this world with “never had a chance” babies.

    • Aug. 28, 9:26pm

      Wow, your driving must suck. I bet you can’t drive a stick.

    • Aug. 29, 10:29am

      Just a though, try taking the tc and asm off otherwise it will bog down.

    • Aug. 29, 12:10pm

      thats fine that some cost almost 1mil but whats annoying is when a car costs 20mil & you can only have up to 20mill cr.
      thats whats annoying!!

  56. Aug. 27, 3:19pm

    It will probably feature winnable shoes to go with the suits and helmets.

    • Aug. 27, 3:50pm

      LOL that made me laugh

    • Aug. 27, 4:48pm

      Don’t forget that sweet ass Hans device.

    • Aug. 28, 9:03pm

      And matching gloves! this DLC will be called: “When GT5 meets Barbie”.


    • Aug. 29, 2:21pm

      Such horrible jokes.

    • Aug. 29, 2:21pm

      Knock knock. Who’s DUR?

  57. Aug. 27, 2:59pm

    I really hope an idea is brought forward for players to “sell their own custom built super cars” online so we can trade more than just cheap cars and paint chips!! Your thoughts??

    • Aug. 27, 4:47pm

      Good idea but you need more than thousand cars for this to be good or work. If you had alot more cars and tuning combination’s to make cars more unique and more desirable then yeah go for it.

  58. Aug. 27, 2:56pm

    “…he says, will be arriving ‘in September and October.’”

    But mostly October.

    • Aug. 27, 4:01pm

      Although November is also an option.

      October 2012…

  59. Aug. 27, 2:41pm

    i hope they keep 3x payouts for seasonals (past & present)

  60. Aug. 27, 2:37pm

    The bugs are for surely the glitch on the TT, that allow the fking cheaters to ruin the game for all others..!

  61. Aug. 27, 2:35pm

    What are the bugs that you guys want fixed? To be honest I havnt noticed many bugs or maybe im just blind.

    • Aug. 27, 2:56pm

      Online lobbies freezing, black screens, super slow lobbies, track break outs (which have ruined two time trials so far), etc.

    • Aug. 27, 3:49pm

      “Online lobbies freezing, black screens, super slow lobbies, track break outs”

      ^ This and some AI tweakin while on battle for position, no more Ai slow down to 50km/h after 3 or 4 turns head to head

    • Aug. 28, 4:06pm

      You get ur speed limited if you cut corners or crash into someone. So it means ur not a clean driver. It’s not that hard to drive clean and overtake people.

  62. Aug. 27, 2:31pm

    New “Features and Contents” .. now we’re talking!

    .. I just want them to fix Gran Turismo weakest spot .. at least they did it with Lexus LFA

    • Aug. 27, 6:11pm

      What did they do with the LFA?

  63. Aug. 27, 2:27pm

    New content as forza is due to come out, i hope they haven’t been putting it off till then.

    • Aug. 27, 2:31pm

      Why not? That’s a good idea.

    • Aug. 27, 3:24pm

      After I found out Forza wouldn’t have Porsches either, it was a no-go for me. I agree and hope they didn’t hold off just to mess with Forza. That comes at our expense and is just a money move for them.

    • Aug. 27, 3:46pm

      it’s a DLC $$$ of course it’s a money move guys, we want new content so bad, they want our money so bad, so let’s make a deal!

      New tracks please!

    Looking forward to seeing what transpires…

  65. Aug. 27, 1:48pm

    Why aren’t there press releases, why oh why does everything involve twitter?

    • Aug. 27, 2:55pm

      Because it’s not 1995 anymore. Welcome to modern times.

    • Aug. 27, 3:17pm
      Steven W

      Twitter sucks, I completely agree with you

    • Aug. 27, 4:15pm

      A press release? Haha, what is this? 1982?

    • Aug. 27, 4:27pm

      LOL, You should know that almost EVERY business in the world uses Twitter. It’s a heck of alot quicker than organizing those old press releases LOL.

    • Aug. 27, 4:46pm

      Twitter is lame. ;)

    • Aug. 27, 4:50pm

      Since when is PD in a hurry? Ha

    • Aug. 27, 7:00pm

      Twitter is useful tool for singers, actors, companies and other assorted organizations, but there’s no real reason for anyone else to have it unless you’re going to regularly quiz these 4 kinds of entities for information, usually questions that coffee-stained-suit interviewers fail to conjur.

    • Aug. 27, 11:34pm

      I love when peeps make them sound so good, but yet it’s a video game sight. You homo!

    • Aug. 27, 11:39pm

      I found out about the Ferrari ban on Ign, and Game Informer long before here. There was no quote about about twitter. So my original ?, who cares about twitter.

    • Aug. 28, 12:34am

      such a tw@t

    • Aug. 28, 6:35pm

      I like they use twitter, Information comes out faster that way.

  66. Aug. 27, 1:38pm

    I feel like a rat in a maze… a maze wich I has payed to be in :D

  67. Aug. 27, 1:36pm

    soo is there anything REALLY important in this update?

    • Aug. 27, 2:54pm

      If this update fixings the problems with slow and freezing online lobbies, it will be good enough for me. I love the game but that is really starting to get on my nerves.

    • Aug. 27, 3:42pm

      Yeah an online fix is MORE than welcome, no more lobby freezing, lag, weird bugs.. maybe I’m too optimistic, let’s see what happen

    • Aug. 29, 5:14am
      Antony Henley

      The update will fix various bugs including the memory strongly that according to Kaz has been Eliminated.
      For the uneducated out there:-
      DLC refers to downloadable content from the Playstation store ie the game add one you buy or get free.
      Content refers to the stuff you will Get In a patch update ie like The racing suits etc etc. Now that does not mean we won’t get any cars or tracks if at all. But that’s how I read it.
      As for this rubbish about Forza 4 I honestly don’t think Kaz is worried about it. Infact to be honest I wouldn’t be surprised if they have pre ordered a copy for their office x-box already!!!!!

  68. Aug. 27, 1:33pm

    Could this be……..the ONE?! :D

    • Aug. 27, 1:35pm

      Hopefully :)

    • Aug. 27, 1:56pm

      I hope so too, I’m almost ashamed to admit it, especially on here, but I’ve not played GT5 for a month or two now… I just found myself car collecting by the end and when the used car marketplace just kept bring up cars I already had or different skylines or 3000GTs I felt I’d gone as far as I could go :(

      But new content would be like a breath of fresh air! cant wait!

    • Aug. 27, 6:09pm

      When he said “content”, does that mean dlc?

    • Aug. 27, 7:50pm

      Indeed! Keeping our fingers crossed.

    • Aug. 27, 9:25pm

      polyphony are trying to counter turn10 at this point. releasing a dlc when forza is released would be brilliant yet catastrophic.

  69. Aug. 27, 1:33pm

    Wheyyy this is gurrd news we need updates fast for the bug fixes.

  70. Aug. 27, 1:32pm


    • Aug. 27, 8:55pm

      black screen fix plz

    • Aug. 28, 10:20am

      Online Seasonal Events pleeeease! :D Miss it so much from GT5 Prologue. Instant tight races over and over again. Without annoying race settings and waiting time.

    • Aug. 28, 2:17pm

      they have to fix Online Lobby freeze.. I dont play online for 2 months now… Im very tired of this glich… (PS I have everything set up to perfect, its 100% gt5 fault!)

    • Aug. 28, 6:36pm

      Don’t so long time left :D
